Salmin M. is in his late fifties and is married with six children. He runs a food stall where he sells basic groceries as well as tea. Salmin has been operating this stall between 6 am and 9 pm for 17 years. The stall earns him a good monthly profit.

This will be Salmin's 6th loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. His previous loans were used to repair his stall and to increase his stock, loans which he has successfully repaid. Salmin aims to use this loan to increase his stock in rice and in powdered milk, which he sells with his tea.

Salmin will share this loan with his loan group, New Africa, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In the picture, Salmin can be seen in the last row, wearing a white cap.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

This loan is administered by Tujijenge Tanzania, which was founded in 2006. It has operations in Dar es Salaam, the coastal region, and the Lake Victoria region. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
